7 Benefits of Being a Preschool Teacher

Posted On Jun 2, 2021

Are you interested in becoming a preschool teacher but need some reassurances that you’re choosing the right career path? While no profession is perfect and each job comes with its own unique set of challenges, people who find themselves drawn to education can’t imagine doing anything else.

1. Fun Working Environment 

Unlike a traditional office setting where you’re often confined to a desk or a cubicle for the majority of the day, being a preschool teacher is fun! As a preschool teacher, you’ll get to move about the room freely with your students in a colorful, playful, and healthy workplace environment you’ll actually enjoy being in. 

And forget about your job ever becoming boring or mundane. As a preschool teacher, every day is different, and you never know what to expect when you’re working with kids. For those who enjoy surprises and spontaneity, becoming a preschool teacher won’t disappoint. 

2. You Become More Patient 

Working as a preschool teacher helps you become more patient, and who couldn’t use more patience? Dealing with a room full of young kids might sound overwhelming at first, but it won’t take long before you’re managing your classroom chaos with confidence.  

3. You Become More Creative 

When you work with young children every day, you begin to tap into more of your own creative abilities than you would if you worked in a traditional office environment with adults.  Children are not afraid to think outside the box, so being around kids all day can help your own imagination and creativity come alive. 

4. Opportunities for Personal Development 

High-quality preschool programs focus on social-emotional issues among many other things. When it comes to teaching preschool-age children, this often means teaching them self-regulation and conflict resolution. It’s often said that one of the best ways to learn something is to teach it to others, so just imagine how much all of that guiding others can help in your own life as well. Teaching young children gives you the tools to know how to better manage your own emotions. 

5. Feeling Loved and Appreciated 

Children love having company, and that includes you! The interactions with children are of genuine value and as a preschool teacher, it’s an interaction that you can take enjoyment and comfort from because your students truly enjoy being around you and want to be there. Many adults struggle to feel appreciated and valued at their workplace, but when you work with happy, smiling children who can’t wait to see you every day, it can be a really good feeling. 

6. Finding Your Inner Child Again 

Another benefit to becoming a preschool teacher is getting to act like a kid again (to a point). Working with preschoolers allows you to tap into your inner child by exploring what makes young minds learn the best and helping them grasp new concepts. While at work, you get to leave the adult world behind and witness the fun and carefree aspects of childhood again. 

7. Making a Difference 

While this one may sound cliché, it must be said that one of the biggest benefits to becoming a preschool teacher is the ability to make a difference in the life of a child. You’re dedicating your professional career to helping the youngest students grow into responsible, competent learners.
